Darcy Burke is one of the few Regency romance authors who I trust enough that I pick up every release, so I was really looking forward to her new Christmas trilogy! Here are mini-reviews of each of the three books – I thought they’d work best reviewed together, as the stories all intertwine and focus on the same time period from the perspective of three siblings.
Wild Swans is one of the books that has had the most impact on me in my life. I read it as a teenager and it blew my mind that there was all this history that I’d never been taught about, and it showed the impact of these huge historical events, so easy to sweep over in a paragraph or two in a textbook, on individuals in a heartbreaking, personal way. Since then, I’ve faithfully read everything else by Jung Chang, and I was over the moon to have the chance to review her newest book, Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister.
I’ve been eyeing The Company of Eight for a while, and with the sequel The Conspiracy of Magic just out, I leapt at the chance to catch up!
Another blog tour post today – this time for fun Regency romance This Earl of Mine!
Today I’m really excited to be on the blog tour for Girls of Storm and Shadow, one of my most anticipated books of the year. This is the sequel to the phenomenal Girls of Paper and Fire, which I loved so much I reviewed it twice, and it more than lives up to the first book’s amazingness!
The Clifftoppers are back for their second exciting adventure!
Something a little different today – as picture books tend to have shorter reviews, I thought I’d throw a few in together for a more substantial post, and I have a lovely selection from New Frontier Publishing to show you! These are all about animals who are trying to find their place in the world, so they make a lovely set.
